Module Description

This module provides theoretical and clinical seminars to further the students understanding of the connections between theory and practice as they continue their clinical work. The theory seminars consolidate their understanding of issues facing children and adolescents and further reinforce the students understanding of key psychodynamic concepts and symptomatic behaviour and presentations. The clinical seminars help the students make further use of the theoretical readings in their placement work and in developing further their clinical role. The clinical seminars will further promote the students ability to reflect on and learn about their own work using the observations of others, to learn from the work of others, and to bring creative clinical thinking to bear on a range of cases.
